At a workshop I am giving in Rwanda, an XO got 'Journal Full'. It turns 
out that the Browse instance folder was using 1.2GB of store.

The low-level API says:

     This directory is used similar to a /var/tmp directory, being 
backed by flash rather than by RAM. It is unique per instance. It is 
used for transfer to and from the datastore (see keeping and resuming). 
This directory is deleted when the activity exits (specifically, as soon 
as all children of the activity's first process die)

However, apparently in 0.106 this directory is not being deleted.
